children have worked in bolivia for generations almost three quarters of a million doing so today. this culture led to the development of the livia's new liberal and highly controversial children's code in two thousand and fourteen which gave children as young as ten the right to work under certain circumstances much as anything this. is all news. eat but with that you have in the end all. the things years. but there are hundreds of thousands of children in bolivia operating completely outside the old. mining work is strictly forbidden by the children but it's never enforced and that
12:01 am
means the school boy minus here continues risking their lives for the money they need to savant. we all willingly accepted the risk of being shot wounded taken prisoner but no lucas signed up to be free again poisoned by our own people of seeing stuff that was nuclear biological and chemical products the said do not truck tires all types of styrofoam polystyrene batteries trucks there was a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between berm pits and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate
12:02 am
every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from their exposure from the berm pits would really literally send a v.a. broke and they don't want to pay it so the wady and decades a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they will have to pay and. call for help and get the middle finger to move years to model the slow. delayed and i hope you don't. i think there is indeed to have potential to kind of come out of this impasse of implementing that means good remains by cream on the un peace operations days to some very sensitive politically wall posts contributing countries to be eventually offer troops it's off to decide to to whom they have confidence and to whom they
12:03 am
have not seen you knew. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turn some countries into paid these are the countries with we korea colonies that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow gloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions off. people are very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline almost a decade how good are the results in your duties with the body of people living with the water of the people with you what do i do in a choice between three a beautiful blue she claimed it was i mean if a legal. challenge amounts to this she was always saying they see something. while the same mission is still in place to one of the consequences is to weaken
12:04 am
blue bird flu dismantle the i will first one of this is the truth the consider this is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision making. welcome back across the uk where all things are considered mind to discussing the korean peninsula. ok we left the first part of the program with michael talking about the possibility of a mistake and i think that's the that's one area here that is the what is it the no no no no if i could quote a famous former secretary of defense i think you work for him how michael but. yeah yeah yeah. charles. you know there's
12:05 am
not a lot of discussion in the mainstream of hartley's of zero is the the russian chinese plan of freeze for freeze freezing the program for freezing of the exercises and if we go back i think it was the penultimate round of sanctions against north korea it was televised i watched the whole thing i saw the western nations you know again the sanctimonious nonsense ok. but then the chinese in the russians put out a plan and it was actually quite lengthy it was quite detailed and it's still on the table and that is the way forward and that that table the u.s. can still sit if it so wishes go ahead charles. it's very interesting you mention this is the if you like the geo political backdrop to it because that is also on the show we say the micro level of the tactical level exactly what has caused this breakthrough if indeed it turns out to be that to take place the only reason why these talks have been able to take place in the first place is simply because south
12:06 am
korea agreed to pressure the u.s. to postpone the big military exercises that were planned until after the olympics take place on the basis of those exercises being postponed and the north has made it quite clear about this those talks then take place so it's of course that's ironic in a way because of course the u.s. is constantly stated the aim of those exercises isn't to threaten the north korea and elsewhere but it is to reassure the south and yet it's the south that has gone to america and said listen let's actually stop these exercise or at least put a hold on them and perhaps we can make some progress here and i made this comment earlier this week that you've got a situation where as in korea now it would appear as so many other places around the world comes to mind to some degree syria and so on that when you've got the us and its policies being placed to one side. in these different theaters of potential
12:07 am
conflict then that allows local players to actually exactly gather and talk nor in what sense is this interest in its policies and actually solving problems or only starting on the road to solving problems themselves so i think it kind of follow up with what charles was saying there is that the dilemma that the u.s. faces is it's very entangled in alliances with egos i think all of us on this program agree that this overture is worth exploring the u.s. should sit down at the table and talk about real security issues where everyone needs to feel safe but then you know that the japanese are good reason oh are you going to walk away from your commitments that you're changing your mind see this is the nightmare that the u.s. has with all of its alliances because it makes one false step then the entire region is going to take a lesson from that and maybe it will be a lesson that the u.s. wants them to because the u.s. obviously does not want to look weak in the pacific go ahead and washington. you
12:08 am
know you you if you spoke on a really important subject you know this issue of either being in entrapment or abandonment issues where. either being entrapped or there being abandoned and then it creates various there limits but let me out here throughout the proposal which is a little bit off the charts ok to deal with this situation on the korean peninsula you know i think one of the important things that needs to be done is a little bit of this tangle ing off the korea u.s. alliance within the context of the united nations command south korea is capable of carrying fighting and defeating of course not korea by conventional means of course if south korea just was able to take care of that responsibility it would also find that it has a greater autonomy in its political and diplomatic decision making with regard to north korea what do. does it depend on with regard to the u.s.
12:09 am
is the extended to turn the strategic deterrent that has to remain in place and that needs to be credible but if we can't have a little bit more separation between then the war fighting in the aspect between south korea and the united states and south korea takes the lead on that perhaps they might also become a little bit more brave on the diplomatic front and drag america a little bit more towards more diplomatic means of tackling these situations then just purely military means seems to be and michael particularly since american public opinion research major poll that came out is that the american public is reduced by a very sizable majority frowning on all these foreign adventures and intra entrapping alliances here but i mean the one of the interesting things is that in the west they don't think about or talk about is that there's always been on the agenda of unification of the peninsula of course the issue is under whose terms ok
12:10 am
because the chinese well they certainly don't want to see it under souls are asked mrs and of course the united states as i want to see it under the north korea what they call quote unquote the regime here again i think the region has to give more agency to the koreans to find out what they want to accomplish where they want to go because the south koreans have been brigaded that responsibility for free defense but i would say having all those american troops there makes the place far more dangerous and the u.s. is way long overstayed its need to be there in south korea go ahead michael. well i think that's part of the dilemma for the united states now and on the one hand a green well i love this let's proceed with talks but on the other hand how does this in the long term affect our relationship because you have to take into account the united states need to take into account then what is strategic relationship will be toward japan as you pointed out earlier and toward the south because we do
12:11 am
have existing alliances with south korea i think that the the reality is the united states is unless it takes some preemptive effort which is going to knock everything out it needs to allow the koreans to figure out their own destiny on the one hand it we have to accept the fact that north korea now has nuclear weapons it's like except in whether india or pakistan has nuclear weapons or israel our influence over that was zero or even israel you know israel as you know we they they deny that they haven't but they've got a lot of four hundred units of them and it's really well you know mike mike mike mike mike well let me let me go ahead my my proposal is it's always been my proposals always been the united states needs need needs diplomatically to go and challenge north korea by offering an ultimate lee diplomatic relations less than this less than the sanctions except their existence and and accept the reality and
12:12 am
that they're there and let the two koreas figure out their own destiny ok michael one more thing i'll go to charles here they're going to have to accept that north korea is a nuclear power because this is you said a country that is determined to get those weapons does it ok and there's not much you can do beyond obliterating it we have india we have pakistan we have israel south africa decided to give up you know ukraine gave away their weapons to negotiations but you know north korea as charles you started out with the program they've learned the lessons of regime change so part of the lives that into numerate what michael said. is to recognize them as a nuclear power state nuclear weapons state ok that's going to be very tough for a lot of people to swallow but i think it's almost an inevitability and then when you have a unification of maybe south korean peninsula maybe those weapons go away too it's a long long process charles go ahead. that's right and this is all tied into didn't our ancient concepts of course of deterrence. destruction and all that now the
12:13 am
things currently stand in for the forseeable future the fact is that north korea does not pose a threat to the united states even if it develops a capability to have a couple of nuclear weapons on board quite unsophisticated i.c.b.m. systems that doesn't pose an existential threat to the us whereas of course the use of those weapons would very much pose an existential threat to north korea the problem is is that of course america has got other interests in south korea that are beyond simply ensuring peace on the peninsula that for example it's we talked about its military facilities earlier there is also a dispute of sorts going on between the south korean government and we're talking about diplomatic. over that deployment of anti-ballistic missile systems there and especially the radars that the americans are deploying which of course are important perhaps not so much for the south korean security but for spying on china
12:14 am
that certainly china's fears and so that's quite it's quite a complex situation in respect of the strategic picture. other countries such as japan it's understandable that they from their perspective see korea a threat with these weapons and therefore that threat needs to be mitigated but the question is how and what is the best way of doing that and it would seem to be the case that with the progress we've made so far in terms of these talks starting in only the beginnings there are many talking about sport but it may go to other issues and hopefully it will that actually when you take the pressure off and the rhetoric and deescalate then progress can be made in the canceling or the postponement of these exercises which north korea sees as a threat to its existence is a start for that process ok i'm going to go back to michael gives you a real expert one of my experts on donald trump and i'm going to get a silly idea i was like put. i'm going to put up the flag and i want to see if you want to salute this is
12:15 am
a golden opportunity for for trump to prove his critics wrong you know think out of the box be decisive you know put up or shut up you know i mean this it's in the cards he could pull this off if he wanted to ok but does he have the guts or does he have the strength or is he just him did i this is a real serious question go ahead michael well i think he's being hammered in by the neo cons who want to to. who who are committed to regime change to to nation building and i think trump needs to go back to his original promise you during the campaign that he wouldn't do either one of those things and yet he's doing them today or attempting to or he's under pressure from a lot of the near constant in order for that that they can remain relevant in this town i think that he needs to. if he's going to look inward into the u.s. to rebuild infrastructure yes foreign policy in effect should become his domestic policy and i think that that that is where he needs to go and he needs to let the
12:16 am
koreas work things out he's got to recognize that that if he takes. military action anywhere it's going to cost tremendous amounts and he's he's always thinking in dollar in terms of dollars so i think that that's going to be a major well you know out of the race but it also means influence influence throughout the region it what do it what is the it going to mean what i want and i want him to think about his legacy a peaceful legacy that's all the time we have gentlemen many things of i guess in washington and in london and thanks to our viewers for watching us here at our to see you next time and remember rostock schools. in two thousand and sixteen the panama papers show the world with
12:17 am
a tax haven the secrets two trillion united states dollars passed through most of conseco in the amount of time that we did then in the panama papers exposure that's what it shows a lot of money it really is. journalism it's a fact of journalism looking at things that people want to keep secret and asking why would they want to keep these things secret. millions of most fun so i don't see months where examine. all the people which basically have tried to get an advantage out of this sort of. newspaper. and probably other politician which was attacking other politicians the media were quick to find their targets such as the kings of morocco and saudi arabia the president of argentina several prime ministers. and russian president vladimir putin of course. oh my god that had so i have sued so
12:18 am
many newspapers for defamation some things don't just happen by chance it was very striking there were no more americans to go specially book of people from the brics countries specially brazil russia and china that this special project reveals what was missed in the media coverage. the panama chronicles. the central bankers trust me there's the lender of last resort or to provide liquidity case there's a credit freeze to fact that you have such a banks becoming the buyer of first order and that they're printing money to buy stocks is a complete inversion of what their role is supposed to be in the economy and they become a giant hedge fund. i had a great education a good job and a family that loved me. i never had to worry about how i would eat and where i
12:19 am
would sleep. i'm facing christmas a blow out on the streets of london. oh you look spirit. i thought love italy like you will you know to slip in the still give up food for the homeless. because you don't really feel like leaving the you know. and then. the guy just came over to me saw me and gave me a change of this book. unfortunately it appears that once people learn that you've reported in a sexual assault or may have been involved in that they become scared if you
12:20 am
instead of being scared of the perpetrator. president sanctions relief for iran but threatens to put the nuclear agreement if it is not also ahead in. the search for filling the place we want everyone. as the fallout continues from the u.s. recognition of jerusalem as the. european court of justice prevents movement from the fording a moroccan asylum seeker considered a potential terrorist by security forces.
12:21 am
broadcasting live. this is our international certainly glad to have you with us now the trumpet ministration has opted to extend the sanctions relief for iran for another one hundred twenty days the decision will for now prevent the landmark two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal from falling through. in two thousand and fifteen the obama administration foolishly traded away strong multilateral sanctions to get his weak nuclear deal despite my strong inclination i have not yet withdrawn the united states from the iran nuclear deal instead i have outlined two possible paths forward either fix the deal with disastrous flaws or the united states will withdraw even though trump has repeatedly vowed to tear up the iran deal he has decided to keep the deal intact extending sanctions relief but also warning that this will be the last time until the deal is strengthened a bit sanctions will be added on iranian entities for their alleged support of terrorist groups now this comes after his national security advisers and other
12:22 am
signatories have all urged him to comply with the agreement and the e.u. has been urging washington to stick to it for months and just yesterday top you diplomats met with the iranian foreign minister in brussels to reaffirm their support for the deal breaking five years on the trade c.p.o. way that you do you see the room the deal is working you want to. protect just a few a new white shirt page for this deal this crucial for the security of the region but also for the security of good will the agreement was signed in two thousand and fifty and it was hailed as a breakthrough in u.s. iran relations and international concern over iran's nuclear program and it's often described as obama's signature foreign policy achievement but trump has always accused the country of violating the quote spirit of the deal which actually means iran hasn't actually violated the deal and this is deliberately deceptive washington is fully aware that the i.a.e.a.
12:23 am
other signatories and even trans own officials said that iran is in full compliance with the deal now at the last deadline that trump the way of sanctions but decertified iran's compliance with the deal which is completely unrelated to all of this a it's not part of the deal and b. iran's ballistic missiles already been capable of carrying nuclear warheads but regardless trump has always hated. deal he's previously threatened unilateral action to end the deal and has even attacked diplomats who negotiated it one of the worst deals i've ever seen the disastrous deal with a rare one of the dumbest deals or one of the week is contracts the people that negotiated the deal namely kerry and his friends are incompetent one of the worst deals ever negotiated but perhaps trump realized that ending the deal would have been wise considering that it would have led to massive backlash from the international community now we'll just have to wait and see if congress and u.s. allies will agree to trump's demands. the iranian foreign minister zarif called
12:24 am
tromso decision an attempt to undermine the nuclear deal trumps policy and today's announcement amounts a desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement j c p a is not renegotiate rather than repeating tired rhetoric the us must bring itself into full compliance just like iran we got reaction to washington's move from political scientists to my good book trolls and also. being a former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiation team. he keeps saying that this is my last time but actually i wouldn't expect would i think that he can pull out this month. because all his partners opposed to what happens is the other parties involved in the multilateral agreement will cut the new deal with iran and continue on with it and just ignore the us the us would start bluffing all the way
12:25 am
and my hunch is that you know it is the president that makes decisions and you have to go one day at a time and don't place too much bed in his own team a time today because this deal serves us is national interest as confound by defense secretary mathis and tillerson another's. suppose a threat from iran is also being used to justify the us military presence in syria assistant secretary of state david satterfield defended the policy have a senator the president has committed as a matter of strategy that we will not leave syria we're going to stay for several reasons stabilization and assistance in the vital north and northeast protection of our allies the syrian democratic forces but for other reasons as well including countering iran how so with force with troops with.
12:26 am
diplomacy which one of those setters combination of measures first and foremost it is aggressive sanctioning and measures undertaken by the u.s. and our partners you heard from dr buss abdulla a professor of political science at damascus university he said the u.s. has no legal right to be in syria. what mr satterfield said in the congress conversion okami it shows that america is lying all the time especially with this administration first of all they see before the they are. fighting against terrorism then i says now we are hearing another reasons. one to give us a model of democracy. to see that america where is their models in afghanistan or in iraq or where america it means there are
12:27 am
a problem the reason behind that mr sutton fitted and it's of international law everyone knows they are not they are not in syria by invitation of legal syrian government they are not going to themselves by the security council resolution so they are kopitar. this week marks the sixth consecutive friday the palestinians have gathered to protest against the use us recognition of jerusalem as the israeli capital at least seventeen people were injured in clashes in gaza journalist who dari reports now from the. but it was. oh. god why the palestinians are outraging
12:28 am
the israelis are throwing tear gas that is just. as easy to tear gas were filling the place everyone everyone is inhaling to you guys we can see they do it right. as you can see they nearly strike in the leg from the tear gas canisters that went through no wait now i know that palestinian protesters go through rubble. yesterday there was a palestinian killed in guy's and another one was killed in that news both of them are sixteen year old palestinians. and just there was referring to the deaths of two sixteen year old palestinians killed in clashes with israeli forces one of the
12:29 am
teenagers from gaza was shot in the chest according to reports the other from the west bank was shot in the head twice in both cases israeli soldiers say that they were responding to palestinians throwing stones at them these are pictures from the teenagers from the us. president has canceled a visit to london and to open a new us embassy he says the trip was called off because he is unhappy with the one point two billion dollar relocation project. the reason i can't so much here to london is that i'm not a big fan of the obama administration having sold perhaps the best located in finest embassy in london for peanuts only to build a new one in off location for one point two billion dollars. wanted me to cut the ribbon. despite still appeared at the new embassy but as a waxwork the. statue was placed outside the building to the delight of
12:30 am
construction workers and the locals goes deeper now into the president's decision not to visit. this is what it. is about says the new us embassy in the area of nine elms which is being regenerated in sort of an embassy quarters. of the public next week was supposed to arrive in was widely expected that you'd be cutting the ribbon and that's not happening any more clearly the old building of the u.s. embassy on that was on the sort of grand old square in the very heart of the city in the center of mayfair which many people know is the most expensive location on the monopoly board but the interesting thing about the president's tweet says that there was a slight error he accused the obama administration of selling that old building for peanuts it was in fact the bush administration before him and there have been suggestions that this whole embassy row is a way of getting attention away from the fact.
